Panayiota Mini, Constantina Georgiadi, Approaches to film history, Institute for Mediterranean Studies, 2020

IMS Publications

The collective volume Approaches to Film History is the result of the research work of graduate students, PhD candidates, and early career researchers of the Department of Philology of the University of Crete. It consists of twelve essays covering various aspects of film history study, including issues of film distribution, exhibition and reception; representations of institutions, social groups, and historical events; relations between cinema and other arts; and topics on Greek cinema that have rarely been examined. The approaches included in this volume offer a representative picture of the richness of film studies and of the wide range of topics that film historians in Greece could investigate.
